Maya end date = Oct. 28

Revising the Mayan End Date

(from Dec. 21, 2012, to Oct. 28, 2011)According to researchers like Ian Xel Lungold and Dr. Carl Johan Callerman, the true Mayan end date is not Dec. 21, 2012, but Oct. 28, 2011. That's a difference of 13 months and three weeks earlier than the more modern or commonly accepted date. Why the difference? The researchers claim that the Dreamspell or 13 lunar-month calendar upon which Arguelles and others based their calculations does not take into account the quarterly leap day (Feb. 29) introduced into the Gregorian calendar by Pope Gregory in 1582, whereas the true Mayan calendar does. This pushes the end date almost 14 months ahead of schedule to Dec. 21, 2012 (as calculated from Aug. of 3115 BC).Comment:  You've got until Friday before the world ends, so enjoy!

While many are hyping this up as a contest between the two dates - October 28, 2011 and December 21, 2012 - there are further rifts amongst Maya scholars, and many have proposed other dates. Here are a few of them that I've uncovered in my research. Note that while some of them occur before 12/21/2012, many more occur afterwards.

• December 24, 2011
• December 23, 2012
• December 23, 2015
• (Unspecified, though most assuredly sometime in December) 2023
• December 21, 2112
• December 21 - 23, 2220
